Essentials by Ellen February Release - Daisy

The February Essentials by Ellen Release is now available!

This release is full of amazing goodness from Julie, including a new Mondo flower, TWO coffee sets and some new sentiment dies. Links are below.

I made this card with the daisy, my 'MISTI-turn' technique and some fun Copic-dot colouring.

I started by placing the daisy so that I could get it close, but not overlapping when I turned the panel in my MISTI. I needed to use my original-sized MISTI so that I could stamp the daisy off the edges of the panel. I used the measurements on the MISTI, to make sure that each daisy edge was close to the centre of the panel edge. I was still surprised when it all worked out though!

Then I coloured the daisies, using cool grays for the petals and warm yellows for the centres. I marked the back of the panel so I knew which side was the 'top', just to help with the shading on the flower centres.

Next, I used several blue/purple/aqua Copics to dot the background. I love the look this technique gives!

Finally I added the sentiment using the new Big Scripty Hello die. I cut the shadow from vellum and put some Stickles around the edges for sparkle. I stacked up 2 black 'hellos' and glued them to the vellum.

To glue the sentiment to the card, I put liquid glue on the back but only where the black hello was, so that it wouldn't show through the vellum.

Here's a video:
